Caption: False-colour transmission electron micrograph of a membrane-bound clump of Plasmodium merozoites, the infective stage of the protozoan parasite which causes malaria. Each merozoite enters a human red blood cell, where it reproduces by asexual division, schizogony.A new batch is then released to infect other red blood cells. The synchronised release of merozoites throughout the body results in short bouts of shivering, fever and sweating characteristic of the disease. The sexual phase of the Plasmodium life cycle takes place within the stomach and digestive glands of the malaria mosquito, Anopheles sp.. Mag: x7,200 at 35mm size.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
